When I was a kid, I loved peaches and cream instant oatmeal packets.
I wouldn’t dream of eating them now…since they are full of preservatives, pesticides, artificial colors and flavors…GMOs…
but every now and then I get a craving…
Here is my healthy version of Peaches & Cream Oats. Bonus: This recipe is dairy and gluten free (if you use gf oats).
Peaches & Cream Oats
1/2 cup organic rolled oats
3/4-1 cup water
1/2 cup sliced, ripe peaches (I used thawed frozen peaches)
1/3 cup full fat coconut milk
8 walnut halves, chopped
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
Boil water in a saucepan. Add oat and return to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. This may take more or less time, depending on how much water you are using. Once the oats are cooked, put them in a bowl, stir in peaches, syrup, and nuts. Pour the coconut milk over top…and ENJOY!
Look for the next post in my Real & Clean series later this week!
